The Steal City EP (2018) by Lee Reed
Released in July 2018 “The Steal City EP” was originally housed on a separate Bandcamp page, via The Hamilton Tenants Solidarity Network (HTSN), to help direct album proceeds to the East Hamilton Rent Strike Defence Fund. With HTSN now disbanded, and the Rent Strike long-over, the EP has been taken down from the HTSN page and added to Lee Reed’s collection.
Tired of all the booster bullshit hullabaloo, and the wholesale ransacking of our homes and neighbourhoods.. and inspired by the badass working class resistance of the East Hamilton Rent Strike – Hamilton hard-left loud mouth LEE REED presents: THE STEAL CITY EP. A dark & snarky 5-song state of the city address.. an exposed musical brick lobbed at all them developer pricks cashing in on Hamilton’s grit and the mass displacement of our working class // 2018-2023, all proceeds were directed to the East Hamilton Rent Strike legal defence fund.
